Lincolnshire Elementary

August, 2021-2022

Message from Mr. Hade and Ms. Mayonado

Welcome back to school; we hope this summer has been one of rest for both you and your child. Our staff is ready and excited to kick off the 2021-2022 school year. If you are new to Lincolnshire, welcome to our school family! We know that you will find our school community-friendly, supportive, and focused on working together to build a positive home-school connection. If you are returning to our school, welcome back!


Lincolnshire Schedule:

  • Doors open at 7:55 am
  • Student day begins at 8:20 am
  • Dismissal starts at 2:55 pm


As we begin our school year, one of the essential items for parents is to check and ensure that all contact information is updated. Would you mind updating your parent contact information in ParentVue or by calling Lincolnshire at 301.766.8206? Updating your contact information is very important in case of an emergency. We also send out text messages and emails throughout the school year, and without the correct phone number or email address, you will not receive our updates.


Make sure you LIKE us on Facebook. We are currently communicating regularly with school information.


We cannot wait to see everyone on Monday, August 30, 2021.

COVID-19 Masks

At this time, WCPS is making masks optional while in the school building. If your child needs a mask, we can provide a child-size mask in the main office. Please note that this could change and all families will be notified via all WCPS communications. We encourage you to update your contact information; including your phone number and email before the beginning of the school year.

Back to School Night

Lincolnshire Elementary is so excited to bring back our annual Back to School Night. We understand that these dates and times might not work with all families. Teachers will be contacting all parents beginning the week of August 23, 2021; if the dates and times below do not work for you, discuss other dates and times with your child's classroom teacher.


Lincolnshire Elementary will be offering the following:

  • Virtual Back to School Night, a link will be sent on Wednesday, August 25, 2021, to all families to participate.
  • In-person Back to School Night: PreK, Kindergarten, 3rd Grade, and 5th Grade, Wednesday, August 25, 2021, 6:00-7:00 pm.
  • In-person Back to School Night: 1st, 2nd, and 4th grade, Thursday, August 26, 2021, 6:00-7:00 pm.


*Please note, our Back to School dates and times are all subject to change.

Lincolnshire School Supplies

Lincolnshire Elementary parents do not need to purchase school supplies. We are a Title I school that receives additional money from the Federal Government to buy school supplies for all of our students.


We have found in the past, students enjoy purchasing a backpack for back to school. If your child needs a backpack, call our Title I Family Liason, Kelly Whiteman, or our Community School Guidance Counselor, Kirksten Mitchell, at 301-766-8210. We will make sure that your child receives a backpack before the start of school on Monday, August 30, 2021.

Transportation

First Day of School

Doors open at 7:55 am, and dismissal will begin at 2:55 pm. If your child is riding a school bus, please have them ride the bus to and from school on the first day. Having your child ride the bus will avoid confusion at the end of the day for dismissal.


If your child is a car rider, please know that the first week takes longer than usual. We are asking that you please be patient with all staff members. Our regular car rider dismissal time is around 15-minutes, dismissing over 100 students to cars.


***Very Important***

Please remember, you are in a residential neighborhood and we ask that you drive the speed limit and never use cell phones while driving. This is for the safety of students walking and/or the families in our neighborhood.

School Bus Masks

All WCPS students must wear masks while on a school bus this school year. If a student does not have a mask when entering the bus, WCPS will provide a mask.

Important Note: Car Riders

Lincolnshire Elementary will continue with our Car Rider Tag system this school year. The purpose is to improve the safety and efficiency of our dismissal process. Car Rider Tags are for families that pick up their children daily. Our goal is for all car riders to have their Car Rider Tag by Tuesday, September 7, 2021. On Tuesday, September 7, 2021, children will only be released to a car if there is a Car Rider Tag, those without will need to park and sign their child out at the main office. Car Rider Tags will be available by completing the Car Rider Tag Form by clicking on THIS LINK. We encourage parents to take a photo of the Car Rider Tags so they will have it with them at all times.



For the safety of all students, families that occasionally pick up their child should send a note to the classroom teacher in the morning. Parents will be required to come into the main school lobby and sign out their child if they are not daily car riders.

Free Breakfast and Lunch

Lincolnshire Elementary will continue to offer FREE breakfast and lunch to all students. There will be three lunch choices; A, B, or our new munchable (Lunchable) option as a C choice daily this school year.

Title I Funding

Lincolnshire Elementary is a Title I School. Below you will find our Title I presentation for the 2021-2022 school year explaining how we use our Title I funding.

Class Assignments and Bus Routes

All class assignments will be available through ParentVue on Monday, August 16, 2021, at 4:00 pm. If you do not have access to ParentVue, call our main office to get access at 301.766.8206. Teachers will be contacting families beginning Monday, August 23, 2021.


As soon as bus route information is finalized, we will post it on the school's main door, Facebook, and send the information through text and email to all Lincolnshire parents.

Message from Nurse Hope

If your child is taking medication during school hours, please get in touch with Nurse Hope as soon as possible to complete the proper paperwork. Nurse Hope is available at 301.766.8209; early contact with Nurse Hope will avoid your child missing medication at the beginning of the school year.


A change of clothes is recommended for PreK and Kindergarten students to start the school year. Please put a change of clothes in their backpack daily.

Birthdays and Special Occasions

Student birthdays and special holiday occasions are exciting events that occur throughout the school year and there will certainly be a number of birthdays and holidays on the calendar.


Student Birthdays - Due to the high volume that would occur on a regular basis, student birthday parties will not be permitted within the school environment. Please refrain from sending any form of food items and/or treats with your child to school on the day of their birthday.


Holidays - Holidays are special occasions worthy of recognition. If/when holiday celebrations occur, specific details and expectations will be communicated by your child's classroom teacher in a timely manner according to school guidelines.

Enrollment for 2021-2022 School Year

If you have a child that you have not yet enrolled in school, please do so as soon as possible. It is very important to have all of our LINC students enrolled before August 30, 2021. If you have questions about what you need for enrollment, please feel free to contact the school at 301-766-8206.
